VISTA Leader efforts will seek to alleviate poverty by raising awareness and promoting service engagement, especially for low-income students. The VISTA Leader will oversee all VISTA members, assisting members as they connect with WVU faculty, community partners, and local units using service as learning to provide direct pathways to volunteer learning experiences, both in class and in the community, that encourage enrollment and enhance retention of students on all campuses.
The VISTA Leader will recruit, coordinate with, and support each of the VISTA members to help increase their impact. Through the VISTA Leader efforts, they will increase and enhance the number of innovative service-learning opportunities at WVU, as well as raise awareness of iServe and the opportunities to streamline service data.
